Huntington Beach police took a motorcyclist into custody and briefly pursued another individual in a high-speed chase after they observed a group of bikers engaging in multiple vehicle violations in the downtown area, it was reported Sunday.
At about 9:30 p.m., department officials said officers noticed as many as 15 motorcyclists breaking various vehicle laws in a heavily-pedestrian area on Pacific Coast Highway in downtown Huntington Beach when they attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the group.

After engaging in a short chase, Huntington Beach Police contacted LAX police and gave way to the California Highway Patrol.
